Thank you Ian. This is actually one of three such promotion documents in a grouping. The first one is also signed by Alpers while the third has the usual facsimile Hitler signature but is hand countersigned by Göring. Interestingly the grouping (including a Soldbuch) belonged to a German infantry officer born in Washington, USA in 1912.

I saw these offered for sale. Interesting to think that while Alpers was signing this document, Heydrich was being attacked in Prague.

Just thought that I would post this citation hand signed by Generaloberst (as he was at the time of signing) Erich Manstein. While his signature is commonly seen as a facsimile on the Krimshild citations I can't recall seeing a hand signed citation too many times.

Signature of Generaloberst Werner Freiherr von Fritsch (document is part of a small grouping that also includes a similar one signed 8 months previously by von Blomberg.)

Apologies for the grainy appearance of the main picture, caused by reducing the image size to fit.

A bit off topic: but looking at the signatures it looks like almost all the big shots use either blue or black ink. I would expect a few off them to want to stand out and use green or red ink...

Authentic Hitler?

Postby alexanderautographs on 10 Apr 2010 22:45

A good friend consigned this signed Hitler photo to us. My opinion is it's no good, for the following reasons:

1.) No crossbar on the "H"
2.) "der" and "mit" are all wrong, as are other letter formations
3.) Slant is wrong
4.) Photo seems to be dated 1935, but Hitler apparently didn't wear a grey suit and swastika/eagle patch until the start of the war.

Whether you agree or disagree, please let me know. A certain New York dealer apparently refuses to even consider a refund, although he issued a COA with the item!

Thanks for your assistance!

Here is submission for Hitler's signature (sept 1936)--I believe it to be handsigned but invite any comments. The document is above and a close up of the signature is below. Friedrich Evers later received the German Cross in Silver in 1944--presumably still as a staff officer (different unit).

Nice Stülpnagel! He was one of the few determined to go all the way on July 20 and he arrested all SD and Gestapo in Paris. Von Kluge's lack of nerve and decision to turn him in led to his attempted suicide by headshot (blinded both eyes) and almost drowning when he fell into a canal after the attempt. Bad luck to survive and get the meathook treatment at Plötzensee.
